Ryle Fund Graduate Scholarship - [PDF]
Application for Ryle Scholarship
Msgr. Ryle worked tirelessly to bring the voice of faith to the discussion of just and humane public policy in the state of Arizona. Community leaders from all parties appreciated and respected his work on behalf of the poor, the children, the elderly, and all those who have no voice.
In order to continue his legacy, the Board of the Ryle Fund established the Ryle Scholar program to provide scholarships for gradu-ate level study that will combine the moral and ethical tenets of one’s faith with a com-mitment to peace and justice through work in the area of public policy.
The Monsignor Edward J. Ryle Fund, Inc. was established in 2005 by friends, colleagues and admirers of its namesake in an effort to honor his life and emulate his leadership. The explicit mission of the Ryle Fund is to stimulate dialogue and support projects that promote systemic change to improve the lives of the people of Arizona.
To this end the Fund will educate and converse in an intellectual, scholarly way around public policy issues affecting the common good. The Fund will be a catalyst and convener of diverse audiences of leaders, future leaders and decision-makers.
The finalist who is chosen will attend Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry which offers a Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership. This degree is customized for the person seeking to help lead the world to a place of greater justice and more abiding peace. The scholarship will pay for tuition, room, board, and books for the chosen student during the course of study, 18-24 months. After graduation the recipient will be required to work in Arizona for a minimum of two years in the area of public policy.
We need and appreciate your personal and financial support to continue Monsignor Ryle's work and his advocacy efforts.
